Open House: Friday, December 12 from 5pm to 8pm


Celebrate the opening of Studio 22 on the Brookland Arts Walk, now the working atelier of Tamora Ilasat and Karen Van Allen.  The artists paintings and works on paper will be on display with food and refreshments offered.

The first painting, City Scape by Karen Van Allen,  is acrylic on canvas.  The painting began by exploring the myriad shapes and intersections of community and conversation and lead to a series called Intersection revealing the inevitability of connection.

The second painting, Atmospheric Study by Tamora Ilasat , is mixed media, acrylic, graphite and collage on canvas. Says the artist “This painting emerged after I returned to an earlier collated work that was busy with a lot of content. I decided to rework it…I wanted fewer forms, more subtle color and an atmospheric effect…and I got the result I was after.”

Studio 22 is on the ARTS WALK at 716 Monroe Street across from Catholic University and steps from the Brookland Metro stop.
